Jeff Thomson is a motion designer from UK currently working at Mvsm. His works tend to have a geometric influence behind it.

(All artists have to answer the same 10 questions.)

1. First and Last Name
Jeff Thomson

2. Where are you from? And where are you currently living?
From Hertfordshire and living in London.

3. What’s your main influences?
I see so much stuff online now from so many diverse sources, it’s hard to actually put down what my main influences are… But usually, things that strike the balance between being technically impressive but still grounded in strong design. I’m particularly interested in things that have a strong geometric/mathematical influence.

4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
I studied Geography at university, and half way through my course I realised I had made a huge mistake. I already had been dabbling in graphic design and video editing as a hobby, and I decided to spend that last year and a half getting really into 3D and animation in after effects. I got pretty lucky and managed to secure a job as junior designer at Deadpixels in Soho, after a couple of years there I applied to ManvsMachine and I’ve been there for the last 18months.

5. Where do you see yourself next?
I’m not sure, I don’t feel like I have been at MvsM for crazy long yet, and would want to remain with the team for a while. I guess ultimately somewhere down the line I might like to get more involved with creative direction side of things, but I don’t see that happening for a little while yet.

6. Knowing what you know now, what would be your advice for people in the same area?
I would stress the importance of self-initiated rnd, that has really been an important thing for me.
